THE MOMENT YOU THINK YOU’VE MADE IT,
It’s going to hurt.
Early mornings, late nights.
Sacrifice upon sacrifice.
Because there are no weekends in sport.
Every day is a chance to move forward.
To overtake the enemy.
But the enemy isn’t India.
South Africa or The West Indies.
It’s the voice telling you to press the snooze button.
To be happy with 100 when you could’ve got more.
Be remembered for something greater than how many
followers you have.
Lead by example.
Run a little further.
Lift a little heavier.
Relish the pain.
And always remember…
The moment you think you’ve made it, you’re finished.
THERE ARE NO SHORTCUTS
TO ANYWHERE WORTH GOING
It's a simple sport, really.
For all the talk of high altitude and low oxygen, when it comes down to it, all that matters is hard graft and brutal, bloody-minded consistency.
Keep it up Callum.
Go the distance.
17 miles a day.
120 miles a week.
6360 miles a year.
When it gets boring, and painful and tough.
When all you want to do is give up and take a day off, remember...
There are no shortcuts to anywhere worth going.SHOP HIS LOOK
PLAY THE BALL NOT THE OCCASION
Whether it’s the first point or matchpoint.
The first round or the final.
It’s still the game you fell in love with.
The game you wake up every morning to train for.
The game you can’t live without.
When it looked like you couldn’t go on, you fought, you battled.
Because I know you’re desperate to win.
So forget the opponent. The crowd. The expectation. The sponsors.
Forget it all.

Greatness isn't Given
Whoever you might be.
This is England.
The home of cricket.
Forget what you’ve done before.
None of it matters.
We’ve taken wickets. Scored runs. Held catches.
But you, you’re on the first step of a staircase to greatness.
So start climbing.
Do that and you’ll be one of us.
We’ll teach you. Protect you. Guide and welcome you.
But what we can’t do is carry you.
So hear this.
Out run us, out bowl us, out work us.
Take our place in the team.
Because if you do that, we’ll win it all.
One day internationals.
Being the best in the country’s one thing.
Being the best in the world is another.
Because one thing's for sure…
…greatness isn’t given.
